I was curious about this as well and did some quickie internet research.

Negative stock is considered a better way to go than reversal.

Then daylight balanced stock is considered a better way to go than reversal.

Reversal tungsten is considered the next best, or frankly, the worst way to go.

30 magenta filter is recommended for daylight balanced film under fluorescent lights.

When using daylight film, fluorescent light can go green, when using tungsten film, fluorescent light can go blue.

Lee makes the following filter for tungsten film in fluorescent lighting. It kind of looks like an 85B filter??

One interesting tip, use shutter exposures of 1/60th or SLOWER to make sure the full cycle of the fluorescent light is exposed. I recall getting a visual "throbbing" with my video camera if I shot with fluorescent lighting above 1/60th of a second.

FLB filter converts Cool White to Tungsten (use with tungsten film)

FLD filter converts Cool White to Daylight (use with daylight film)

These filters are not perfect, so any way you cut it, you'll have to pull green out in telecine.
